Threaded Cane for life of the Start Weapons :P

But yeah the main thing is death doesn't matter - even if you lose echoes. Learn from each run.

The first part is probably the worst IMO in terms of mechanics - you have limited resources and can't level up. Can feel very brickwally.

I'm fairly well past the start now and definitely enjoying it more now that there are actually options for progression. Into Old Yharnam and trying to kill the Bloodstarved Beast, tried killing the guy on the top of the tower too but got absolutely kerb-stomped so I'm guessing I'm meant to just leave him for now.

Not sure what to think of it yet as I've spent at least three hours stuck in the opening area because this is my first FromSoft game and I've yet to git gud


I envy you. Bloodborne was also my first FromSoft game, and outside of it just being a strawberry floating an awesome game anyway, that period where I didn't know the 'rules' of their games and was still figuring everything out is one of my fondest gaming memories.

For anyone interested they found a bunch of new enemies in the game files. They might not be lore relevant though, as a lot of unrelated stuff (ie maybe from Dark Souls) can get loaded in when used as placeholders. Apparently they found a Gears of War Lancer in the files for some Japanese RPG.

Yes my mate has provided me with a list of tips to avoid the constant death ass hurt.

Never played DS so i'll probably be gooseberry fool.

Good luck bbz.

A good tip is to only use the fast attack (R1) instead of heavy (R2) when you're starting out. You only have a small amount of stamina when you start out and I've always fond being able to land a couple of quick hits and have enough left to dodge away is better than winding up a slow heavy attack and leaving yourself open, IF you even land it.

Denny. Learn to parry. Make sure you've got plenty of bullets. This is what will save your life. Over and over

Conversely, I very rarely parried. I just put points into my stamina so I could dodge like a manic, and don't be too greedy dishing out hits. Best to get one or two in and dodge our than try for an extra one and get pounded. I picked quick weapons for this reason too.

I did this on my first run through, i found that towards the end, some of the bosses ended me very quickly, second go i focused on parrying, massacred most bosses on my first go. The one that gave me the biggest grief first go was the guy in cainhurst castle, my second run through took him out on my first go. Everyone is different though, and i reckon playing DS3 in between helped a lot.

The axe is your friend for big groups, all about that transformed charge attack.
I'm just about at the end now, just have the Hunter's Nightmare and Logarius to do then off to see the final boss.

Ahh, Kos. Or some say Kosm. Those people are wrong. It's strawberry floating Kos.

The Hunter's Nightmare is pretty mediocre but 3 of the 5 DLC bosses are absolutely spectacular.

I've been reading/watching a bunch of Bloodborne lore content over the past couple of days, it's such a cool setting and story. I remember reaching the point where the story takes a turn, recontextualising everything you've experienced up until that point, and being blown away. A replay is definitely in order soon as I never completed the DLC.

Re downloaded it just for a quick break from Monster Hunter. My last save was on new game +++ I think, level 190. May get back into it and push to level 200.

Wish my image sig would work

The Old Hunter's DLC is currently reduced from £15.99 to £5.79. Absolute bargain for some of the best DLC I've played.
